  • Tell City holds off Patriots

    LINCOLN CITY—Trent Gunn drove in three runs and pitched a scoreless seventh inning for a save as Tell City beat Heritage Hills 5-4 in PAC baseball Tuesday.

    Gunn singled home two runs in the first inning and one more in the fifth, when the Marksmen took the lead for good.

    Andy Chinn singled and stole second base to set up the go-ahead run.

    Chinn went 3 for 4 and Gunn and Rhodes each added two of the Marksmen’s 10 hits.

  • Tell City sweeps Raiders

    TELL CITY—Tell City won all 15 events to rout Southridge 95-28 in boys track Tuesday.

    “I don’t think I’ve ever been involved in a track meet where one team won every event,” said Tell City Coach Chris Hollinden. “I’m just glad that when it did happen we were on the good side of it.”

    Jamal Noland won four individual events—two sprints and two jumps.

    Alex Fenn won two distance races and Cody Nash won both throwing events.

  • Cannelton softball defense looks...

    CANNELTON—The addition of a strong freshman class should improve Cannelton’s girls softball team’s defense this season.

    The Bulldogs return seven letter winners from last year’s 0-11 team. But some of the five freshmen have played more softball games than some of the upperclassmen.

  • Rebels shut out Perry Central

    ROCKPORT—South Spencer scored seven runs in the first inning en route to a 12-2 baseball victory over Perry Central Saturday.

    Perry Central took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning on three singles and Clint Schank’s sacrifice fly.

    South Spencer took control in the bottom of the inning, though.

    Four walks, a double and an error led to six runs for the Rebels and chased Commo-dore starter Tony Backer before he recorded an out.

  • TC golf team expects to improve...

    TELL CITY—With four of the five players from last year’s conference roster returning, Tell City’s boys golf team expects to improve on last year’s 15-37 record.

    The Marksmen graduated leading scorer Ian Reed. And with only seven boys on their roster this year, they don’t have a lot of depth.

    But they return their second through fourth scorers and their fifth man from last year’s PAC tourney.

  • Goffinet powers Tell City to win

    HUNTINGBURG—Lauren Goffinet had three hits and drove in four runs as Tell City beat Southridge 6-3 in PAC girls softball Tuesday.

    Goffinet hit an RBI single in the first inning, a two-run triple down the left-field line in the second inning, and a solo home run over the right-field fence in the seventh.

    Josalyn Ress pitched a four-hitter for the win. She gave up three walks and struck out two.

    The game was the season opener for the Marksmen.

    They will visit North Posey for another Pocket Athletic Conference game Friday at 5:30 p.m.

  • Raiders outrun Tell City girls

    TELL CITY—Southridge won nine of 15 events to beat Tell City 73-50 in girls track Tuesday.

    The Raiders swept all three places in three events.

    A highlight for Tell City was its sweeping the three places in the 1600-meter run. Sarah Goffinet won it in 5:50.7, Tiffany Davis was second in 5:50.9, and Andyn Rowe was third in 6:20.

    Goffinet also won the 3200 in 13:14 and Rowe placed second in 13:32.

    Those two teamed with Brittany Waninger and Davis to win the 3200 relay in 11:05.

  • PC boys edge Tell City

    LEOPOLD—Robbie Piper, Dane Ransom, Eric Scheiber and Samson Benjamin each won one event as Perry Central edged Tell City 37-36 in a storm-shortened, season-opening boys track meet Thursday.

    Tell City won five of the nine events completed, including two by Jamal Noland.

    But Perry Central scored second places in five of the seven individual events.

    Perry Central won both throws, with Piper taking the shot put at 50 feet, 111⁄2 inches and Ransom the discus at 124 feet, 1 inch.

  • Kohnert wins twice as TC girls...

    LEOPOLD—Elizabeth Kohnert won two of the nine events completed to lead Tell City past Perry Central 38-35 in a storm-shortened girls track meet Thursday.

    Kohnert cleared 5 feet in the high jump to win it by two inches over Perry Central freshman Lindsey Gengel-bach.

    Kohnert also won the 400-meter dash in 1:05.90.

    “She ran the best 400 she has for a long time—I’m not sure she ran it that fast last season at any meet,” said Tell City Coach Katie Chinn. “She has worked hard over the winter.”

  • TC thinks pitching, hitting are...

    TELL CITY—Tell City girls softball coach Dusty Beard thinks hitting and pitching could be his team’s main strengths this season.

    Lauren Goffinet led the team last year with a batting average “around .340,” said Beard. And several starters batted under .200.

    But this year in practice “we’re hitting the ball real against live pitching,” said Beard. “We’ve had more days outside than we did last year.

    “Last year we were only outside one day before our first game.”
